Art and Christmas and a baby.

HI! well guess what? The Curiosity shoppe? It SOLD! on just barely a week in the shop and someone has snapped it up.. I am so happy. (And kind of smug now seeing that THAT was the first piece to go and Hubby thought I was wasting too much time on it.. heh) I showed him..
It has inspired me to get stuck into another project.. but not until the new year because...

We are going away for Christmas!
Never done it before, but we are mega excited. We are throwing the pressies into Anna Cabana and heading up north a little to a beach side town where my parents are, to spend the week with them. It's going to be so good. We are actually driving up there on Christmas eve..yeah I know crazy huh. But that's the way it's got to be because...

My horrid sister in law had her baby. Today apparently. A boy and both mother and bub are doing fine. So we are going to see them all before we go. To exchange gifts etc. Don't quite know how I am going to handle seeing her with the baby, but I will have to just grin and bare it I guess. *sigh* Did I tell you that she conceived that baby the exact time I lost mine? I know, it's not her fault.. I know it's irrational.. but I still kind of hate her right now.. Hate is a strong word...I don't like using it, but I can't help it. I know I will get over it and I slowly am, but it still hurts a little. So many friends I know announced they were pregnant at that time (my birthday as well), and I guess she was the last straw for whatever rational feelings I had left in me.
I'm getting better.

Lastly I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and a safe New years. (We are driving back home New Years eve.. I know! We live on the edge of crazy here! lol!)  I love this time of year here. We live a few streets back from the beach, up a hill, and spread out around the area are more apartment blocks, and everyone has lights strung up on their balconies. It's so pretty. You walk out on to our balcony at night and it looks like a giant twinkling christmas tree. Just magic. Anyway... until I post again.. Merry Christmas everyone.
Love Sprite.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Sprite! :)

    I knew that piece was going to sell. Lucky buyer!

    Sounds like you'll have a nice time visiting your folks. And, try to stay positive!

    1. And the same to you David.
      Thanks, wonder if they bought it for themselves or a present?

  2. Congratulations!
    Your Christmas plans sound wonderful! I'm jealous.
    May I ask why on earth you exchange gifts with the horrid s-i-s?
    Our tree is up and twinkling. I love the lights and the reflections on the ceiling.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours! xo

    1. Thanks!
      We may stay for
      Oh we don't do presents for the adults, just the kids, and it's not their fault their mother is a ***** :)
      Same to you and your family. xoxo

  3. Of course your Curiosity Shoppe sold---it was fabulous. Congratulations.

  4. Merry almost Christmas to you and yours.

  5. enjoy your trip and i hope seeing the baby doesn't hurt too hard. when i lost my second one, 2 other friends got pregnant within a couple weeks and for about 2-3 years, seeing their kids was like a kick in the teeth. made me think how my life would be so different. now though, i don't mind at all. i'm so thankful God has a way of patching up my feelings after some time passes.
    merry christmas!

    1. I could hug you! someone who understands completely!.. actually it wasn't so bad.. he was a dear little thing and I got to hold him a lot... after she practically shoved him at No it was fine.

  6. Of course it sold.:)

    Have a wonderful holiday and a great new year to those you love.;)


I'd love to hear what you have to say :)
